Freshly pressed green juices are so healthy that we should all consider them in our daily routine. In recent years I have become a bit of a juice snob, preferring only organic juice that has been freshly pressed, anything that’s been sitting in a fridge for a few hours will not do. Sometimes I struggle to fit everything into my daily routine and sometimes (or a lot) there just isn’t the time for juicing in the morning. The best compromise I have found is using alkalising powered greens. I simply mix a small scoop of power with a bottle of water, drink it and head out on my merry way.
BENEFITS OF BEING ALKALINE
According to livestrong.com if you have a slight pH fluctuation, and your body becomes more acidic than it should be, your body immediately begins to exhibit symptoms of an imbalance. These symptoms may be considered little things, like a runny nose, fatigue, a skin breakout, or a slight case of irritable bowel syndrome. However, these minor health issues are actually the first sign that your body might be too acidic and needs to reach a more alkaline state. Although exposure to germs and contaminants, stress and other external life factors can cause all of these symptoms too, you are more likely to have clearer skin, better digestion, more energy, and a nose that runs less often when your body is alkaline.
The UK based company Energise For Life stocks a selection of powered greens that are hard to find, even in health food shops or places like Whole Foods. Young pHorever is my brand of choice which contains Wheatgrass, Kamut Grass and Barley Grass, Alfalfa Leaf, Broccoli, Tomato, Spinach, and Cabbage, combined with 35 other leaves and vegetables known to be highly alkalising.
I also picked up a jar of Raw Reserve from Whole Foods in London because I had been traveling and didn’t have anything with me. This product has the added benefit of 25 billion probiotics in each serving and tastes better then the pH Miracle Greens. Whilst I am a loyal Young pHorever customer I also really like the Raw Reserve so I will definitely recommend both. Even though fresh juicing is king in my opinion the powered greens contain many nutritious grasses and leaves that are difficult to find for juicing, therefor both are a great option.
